It's now possible to envision a world where our daughters and granddaughters have fewer rights than we did. With Hillary, we can make sure that bad dream never comes true.
The millionaires and billionaires who want to gut public sector pensions in California have decided to put off their anti-labor ballot initiatives until after the Roberts Court imposes its "right-to-work" regimen on the whole country this June.
In the sixth GOP debate, Donald Trump told Americans: "The police are the most mistreated people in this country." On the same day, the Chicago Police Department released a video showing an officer killing Cedric Chatman in 2013.
I work at a virtual organization which operates a virtual community of professionals. This means that I work at a virtual entity whose employees are in different offices, cities and countries (and even on different continents), and with a network of experts who collaborate remotely. And I love it!
Monday was an important day for America's shrinking middle class. The Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association, a case that could impose radical new limits on the rights of public sector workers -- like teachers, nurses, and firefighters -- to join together to win better lives for their families and communities.

As a senior in college, I can't say I'm the most qualified person to make a decision on whether race should play a factor in college admissions. However, based on my research and class discussions this semester, it is evident something needs to be changed throughout the country and more specifically here at the University of Delaware.
The Supreme Court's seeming willingness to dismantle diversity initiatives and, more specifically, affirmative action, on the basis of anecdotal information is infinitely disturbing.
There is no guarantee that the name on that ballot will be Hillary Clinton. She's already vulnerable in at least two of the first four states to vote, and if she loses both Iowa and New Hampshire then the rest of the country (including the media) will start paying a lot more attention to Bernie.
Stories help us make sense of the world. Life is messy and chaotic; if there's a point to it all, that point is sometimes very hard to see. We try to impose meaning on our lives by placing experience within a narrative frame. And if we're lucky, there's a big theme that gets developed as the story goes on.
It is more important than ever that we remember the mistakes of the past and honor those who fought against them at the time. One president took Mitsuye Endo's freedom, and that of thousands of other Americans.
